merry christmas everyone!
so our family tradition is to do all the gifts at midnight on christmas eve. it started out that us kids would stay up playing monopoly with my father, then we could open up one present at midnight. then a bunch of my mother's family would come over the next day, and we'd have a merry christmas. but then years of getting older and years of family drama later, we decided to just open them all up at midnight.
also, growing up we had a fake tree, more recently, no tree, just a bunch of poinsettias. but this year....awesomeness:
can't beat the smell of plastic and l.e.d. lights!
roommate christmas will be later this week.
we got one of those living christmas trees, which will be planted at a later date.
